Abdominal binder, SOLO a.k.a do it by yourself

I have been recovering at my nieces, and had to rely on her and her fiancé to get my abdominal binder on tight enough for overnight. I had no idea how I was going to manage it, all on my own. Once I had managed some stairs, and figured out the binder, I had hopes that I could finally go home (to my own upstairs bed away from this constant kid chaos, and get back to keeping an eye on my 91yo Pop!). I have been getting anxious about all of that!

"Sister", my best friend, had an idea, although she never required a binder with her hysterectomy.

Leave the binder positioned at the appropriate tightness for you, and then slide it down over your hips. Next time/day, slide it back up from your feet. Take your time, though.

It worked like a charm, my very first time!

Yes, there was a little bit of finagling, some time and some patience involved...but it worked! I have a long vertical incision, to help accommodate a watermelon-size mass, and this works for me. I am just over a week post-op.

I look forward to getting back to my own upstairs bed, soon!
